Restless Productions is in an early phase of research/creation for a new interdisciplinary work.
Their collaborative process involves sound/movement, brown paper (and the sound and movement of brown paper), architecturally informed spatial design, and digital projection. They are exploring contingency, possibility, and implication through several disciplines, in an installation-like format.
Through researching what it is to create work for which the “product” and venue remain speculative—digital/live, performance/installation, gallery/theatre—scale, medium, and the relationships between disciplines take on new generative qualities. Dancers and musicians occupy a speculative world of half-formed and in flux (re)presentations. This lab is a hybrid space; fertile, adaptive, optimistic.
Restless recognizes this opportunity as a gift and a privilege and is looking forward to sharing their lab space with you.
